    we got our first chicks ever 3 days ago. All seemed find and healthy. Today 2 are listless and seem in decline. Standing still and facing
    The wall of the brooder. Not pasty but. Any ideas would be welcome

    Hmmm. Perhaps check their poop to see if it's bloody. If they are, they probably have cocci, which is a very contagious disease among chicks and is very serious.

    Nutridrench is a vitamin filled supplement. When we were preparing for our first chicks it was highly recommended by several knowledgeable BYC members. It is also available at Tractor Supply.
